Seine-Maritime holiday rentals - Rent-in-France holiday homesSearch Rent-in-France for self catering rental gites, houses & villas in Seine Maritime, France. Previously known as Seine-Inférieure, Seine Maritime is a department of Normandy on the northern coast of France, at the mouth of the river Seine. It wasn’t until 1955 that the department changed its name from Seine-Inférieure to Seine Maritime, this is believed to have been done to make a more positive sounding name and in keeping with changes made in a number of other French departments. As expected the landscape in Seine Maritime is mostly coastal with a large number of historic landmarks and Norman castles spread across the department. Be sure to experience some of the fantastic cliff sceneries that the coast line offers when staying in a Seine-Maritime Holiday Gite. Seine Maritime has a strong gastronomy culture and as with other parts of Normandy, you will find some fine food and drink around that include fish, meats and cheeses. The cider is also very popular in the area along with the Bénédictine liqueur and apple sugars from the town of Rouen.

 

Places to visit in Seine Maritime, France

Dieppe Dieppe is the major port for crossing the English channel and since the arrival of the Channel tunnel this wonderful seaside town has been given a face-lift.  You can now expect a vibrant town where the seafront and streets are lined with a number of pleasant bars, cafes and restaurants. Be sure to visit the château-musée which is located high on the hilltops where you can admire some magnificent panoramic views across the pebble beaches. Dieppe is home to a large Saturday market which attracts large crowds from several of the surrounding villages.  

Le Tréport situated in the North east of the department this was once the popular beach resort that the French would visit in the late 19th century due to its rail link. Many of the restaurants, bars and hotels offer great views of the surrounding white cliffs, fishing boats and yachts passing by.

Rouen A city that is full of  historic monuments, medieval streets and picturesque churches. Rouen is home to a giant flea market on Sunday mornings at the Place St Marc and a fantastic bric-a-brac market each Thursday morning at the Rive Guache.

Although the main roads through the city don’t offer you the wonderful picturesque views you may expect, this does mean that it keeps the majority of the traffic away from the pedestrianised centre which more than makes up for it with its superb display of medieval architecture and monuments. 

Le Havre Dominating the mouth of the river Seine, Le Havre is still a major ferry port.

The climate in  Seine Maritime is very similar to what we are used to in the UK, but due to its location, you can enjoy a milder climate most months of the year. Like in England, you can expect warm summers with the temperatures averaging in the mid 20s with the highest temperatures sometimes hitting an impressive 30°c and above. The winters do remain relatively mild but can be quite wet at times. Le Havre - Seine-Maritime Holiday homes, France
